It's like I had a little epiphany. I sort of woke up from the fog (again) and my head seems to be screwed on straight.
Yesterday seems appropriate - it rained. It washed away September and summer and all of that mess. I'm ready to embrace the new season and I am excited about the possibilities.
What are those possibilities?
Well.. for one I am getting a new room mate. The best part of that (besides saving tons of money,) she is one of my best friends in the whole wide world. We haven't been able to spend time together in years and this will be like a nice little get together that will last for a while. We travel well together, we can have hours long conversation, and we balance one another out. That's such a treat!
She is much more active than I am, which means it will be a GREAT influence to encourage me to get moving again. It will be nice to have someone to pop off to Zumba with, or ride bikes, or go walking, or even go out dancing one night.
Second, I have picked my rosetta stone back up. (FINALLY.) That should keep me super busy and continuing to expand my mind.
Work is getting fairly busy as we prepare for our biggest fundraisers - All That Jazz and Pan African Festival.
Of course there is the issue of the "guy." We've spent the past few days together and enjoying each others' company. We spend hours just talking and laughing. I think since we are both post divorce, it's nice to have someone to talk to, flirt with, do things with, and lift one another up. I think that's the most logical way to understand how he and I must work. Nothing too serious. Just spend time together when we can.. and try hard to be patient with one another. I still have so much going on in my head, as does he. No labels (again.. which I know can be dangerous,) but I'm not seeing anybody else... so we will just see where this goes.
As for my community, there are many really fantastic activities during the holidays, and I am looking forward to experiencing many of these. I've grown a little tired of some of the egos of some of my marketing peers in the arts, but it is what it is. I don't think they are aware of how they are coming off to others.. but that's okay. Needless to say, it's just small town BS. I just stand back, watch and laugh a little.
I need to just enjoy the cooler weather, the new experiences, and this wonderful life that I have been blessed with.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
